Mark Cuban has made waves recently for discussing bigotry and racism. Considering his wealth and positioning on television, the issue spread well beyond the sports world (though ESPN did their fair share of debating the hell out of it), and into the regular news cycle.

Let’s check out the reactionary Twitterverse: a land where civil discussion has no purpose. A land where we can shoot from the hip. A land where only the snarky survive. A land of hilarious illogic. Let’s take it to the streets.
